The issues is discussed here.
The answer from sjj698 date from 2011. I'm using R2012a runtime.
When extracting the files from the installer, there's no msi at all. There's a setup.exe and a mcrinstaller.jar, among others.
The goal is to run a mvc.net website that use a .net compiled matlab dll.
Anyone has any luck deploying the 2012 version of the runtime into azure?
